Description:
This is the fourth national clinical audit on planned home births in Ireland under the care of Self Employed Community Midwives (SECMs). Anonymised data were reported by the five Designated Midwifery Officers on a total of 228 planned home births in 2015. Over half of all planned home births were arranged through the Health Service Executive (HSE) South home birth service (55%). Almost three quarters of the women who intended on having a home birth had a previous birth (73%). Women intent on a home birth had an older age profile to all mothers who gave birth in the country with 75% aged 30-39 years versus 64% for all women giving birth. Body mass index (BMI) was reported for over half of mothers who planned to have a home birth (60%). Of the 60% with data, most were in the healthy range (71%), 22% were overweight, and 7% were obese.
